Congratulations on taking the first step to delighting your patients with an affordable one visit dental crown solution.

To get the most out of the One Visit Crown system, it is important you receive clinical training to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible with the procedure.

The secret to a successful first OVC case is to be prepared.  

We’ve included in this post a checklist, plus extra tips so you can systematically plan your first OVC restoration and ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.   

We’ve also included links where you can access further clinical training. 

Key resources we recommend you review before your first OVC case:



Checklist for your First OVC Case

Tick-50x50px It is recommended to allow additional time for your first few OVC procedures in case they run a bit over time while you are learning. Scheduling prior to your lunch break or at the end of the day could be useful.

Tick-50x50px Choose a first case that has easier access and visibility – many clinicians find that lower molars or premolars are easiest. It goes without saying that the case should be one that you don’t think has an overly complicated clinical situation.

Tick-50x50px If you want to feel more relaxed, you may wish to offer your first OVC cases to a staff member or patient you are familiar with and explain to them that you are trying a new procedure. 

Tick-50x50px Remember, there will be a learning curve with the OVC.  As with any new product and procedure it takes around 3-4 cases before you develop your own preference for technique.  

Tick-50x50px Please allow at least 10 working days in your treatment plan to have the OVC ordered and shipped to your practice.  

Tick-50x50px Make sure that you are prepared – use the handy OVC Chairside Guide  as a reference during your procedure to make sure that you don’t skip any important steps. Review the instructions and clinical videos on our website and if you have any clinical questions or require more training visit the dentists area on our website.

Tick-50x50px We highly recommend that you attend one of our hands-on training events, however if you can’t make it to any of our events, that’s okay – please spend some time watching our instructional videos, or schedule a one-on-one online training with one of our knowledgeable product specialists.

If you have any doubts at all, we are there to support you every step of the way  – you can contact us anytime on our freephone numbers.

Look For Ideal OVC Cases

Select Your Case

  • The OVC procedure is ideal for patients who:
    • have previously deferred crown treatment due to cost barriers (sending a letter like the example in this pack is an excellent way to recoup lost income).
    • are time poor such as tourists or corporate business people.
    • need multiple crowns.
    • need emergency treatment.
    • live a long way from your practice.
    • need a root canal as well as a crown and cannot afford both procedures.
    • want a conservative option to a traditional crown.
    • would otherwise choose a large composite build-up or a tooth extraction.

The OVC is also popular among young patients, retirees, uninsured, veterans or low-middle income patients.
